The song Swing Low, Sweet Chariot is an Af­ri­can-Amer­i­can spir­it­u­al composed by Wallis Willis, a one-time slave for the Choctaw Indians

The song is also sung by English rugby supporters ever since it was sung during a match in 1988 season, against Ireland at Twickenham, when, following an extremely fallow patch for the side, England scored 6 tries. Three of the tries came in quick succession from Chris Oti, a black player making his Twickenham debut. A group from the Benedictine school Douai started to sing a rugby club favourite – the gospel hymn Swing Low, Sweet Chariot – in honour of their new hero, and the whole crowd joined in.

The song is still regularly sung at matches by supporters. There are also a series of gestures that accompany the song, many of which are sexual.
